What the headline says.
University of Michigan men's lacrosse head coach John Paul announced in conjunction with his counterparts at Ohio State (Nick Myers) and Penn State (Jeff Tambroni) the establishment of the Creator's Trophy, which will be an annual award among the three Big Ten schools that sponsor men's lacrosse.
A team that earns a 2-0 record against the other programs will take ownership of the trophy each spring and have its name and the year inscribed. If all teams earn a 1-1 record then no team or year will be recorded on the trophy and it will reside with the most recent team to win it outright. Following each game, a player of the game from the winning team will be selected.
Ohio is a conference rival at the moment, but Penn State is not - they play in the CAA. But this essentially cements a nonconference game against PSU every year, as if we didn't mostly expect that already. A neat idea.
I would give Penn State a slight edge over Ohio this year, but it shouldn't be long before U-M is competitive with these two schools. I think by 2014 - the program's third year - we could be in contention for this thing.
